Nepal - Kathmandu (Chapter)
This is the Kathmandu chapter from Lonely Planet’s Nepal guidebook.
Whether you’re barrelling through the alleyways of the old town in a rickshaw, marvelling at the medieval temples of Durbar Sq or dodging trekking touts in the backpacker district of Thamel, Kathmandu’s riot of sights, sounds and smells can be intoxicating.
- follow our walking tours through the labyrinthine backstreets of the old town, bursting with hidden courtyards and little-known temples
- soak up the amazing architectural monuments of Durbar Sq, an artistic and architectural tradition that rivals the great cities of Europe
- dine on momos (dumplings) and wild boar to the beat of madal (drums) and bansari (flutes) at one of the city’s superb Newari restaurants
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Kathmandu and Swayambhunath & around.
